    I guess this question is posed primarily to our U.S. members (but would love for any others to chime in as well)...

    If you had the opportunity to travel to Europe in say, December, but only for a short while, say 5 or 6 days...would you feel it was worth doing?

    Gee, would love to see some of Europe, maybe somewhere warm though in December, unless going for skiing and winter stuff. Cortina...yes, 5 days there!

    LOL...normally I would too...but it's such a short span of time...it would REALLY be a whirlwind trip...

    If it were a "once in a lifetime" type opportunity, I wouldn't hesitate...but at the moment, it's more of an "impulsive" opportunity.

    hmmm you have AP's and it would be cheaper to fly to FL. Due to the expense, I would probably opt for Disney. You could take the Yuletide Tour :p015:

    :p well there is the Christmas party and the Candlelight Processional and Osbourne Lights and the gingerbread house at GF.....

    I can pack a lot more into 5 days at Disney and have no jet lag than I could do in England and probably have serious jet lag (considering that I was all screwed up by the CA time change thing)

    Another vote for Disney. Save Europe for a longer vacation.

    Disney for 5 days :p015: I am all for impulsive trips usually but I would worry about feeling yuck for a day or so of those few precious days with jet lag (I always feel yuck travelling back from the US.)

    I would worry about the weather as well - December can be pretty miserable, but then so can every other month :lol:.

    That said if you are happy to make the fairly long trip just for a few days and you do have other WDW trips planned and you are happy to just have a snippet of the UK then I'm sure you would have a great time - it would take quite a bit of planning though to see as much as possible. :)

    Thanks for all your input so far guys!! Hadn't thought much about the weather, so that's a factor too!
